TWO CHAMPIONS IN THE SPOTLIGHT AT ONE FRIDAY FIGHTS 46
The highly anticipated ONE Friday Fights 46 is set to take place on December 22 at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand. The event will feature two high-stakes title matches, with Joseph Lasiri defending his strawweight Muay Thai world title against familiar opponent Prajanchai PK Saenchai, and Anissa Meksen vying for the interim atomweight kickboxing world title against Thai sensation Phetjeeja.
Lasiri is gearing up for a long-awaited showdown with Prajanchai, while Meksen is set to return to action after more than a year since her last fight in ONE. Both fighters are prepared to showcase their skills and claim victory in their respective title bouts.
Meksen, an Algerian-French fighter, is determined to make her mark in the atomweight kickboxing division. Having waited patiently for a title shot, she is eager to seize the opportunity and prove herself against the formidable Phetjeeja. Lasiri, on the other hand, is focused on putting an end to his rivalry with Prajanchai and solidifying his status as the reigning strawweight Muay Thai world champion. The stage is set for a thrilling night of action at ONE Friday Fights 46.
In a recent interview with onefc.com, Lasiri expressed his confidence in Meksen’s ability to secure a victory in her title clash. He emphasized Meksen’s experience and determination, predicting that she will emerge victorious against Phetjeeja. Lasiri’s endorsement of Meksen comes as no surprise, given her impressive track record in the promotion, including an undefeated record of 3-0.
Meksen’s return to the ONE Championship spotlight has generated significant buzz among fans and pundits alike. Her opponent, Phetjeeja, has also garnered attention for her undefeated streak since debuting in ONE earlier this year. With both fighters at the top of their game, the atomweight kickboxing world title clash promises to be a highly competitive and dramatic affair.
Meanwhile, Lasiri is preparing to defend his strawweight Muay Thai world title in a highly-anticipated rematch with Prajanchai. Their first encounter, which took place last year at ONE 157 in Singapore, saw Lasiri emerge victorious by way of technical knockout. The upcoming rematch presents an opportunity for Lasiri to once again showcase his dominance and silence any lingering doubts about his initial victory over his Thai rival.
Lasiri emphasized his determination to prove that his first win over Prajanchai was no fluke. He is eager to reaffirm his world title against a formidable opponent and demonstrate his skill and prowess in the ring. With the stage set for a highly-anticipated rematch, Lasiri is poised to deliver another impressive performance and solidify his status as the reigning champion in the strawweight Muay Thai division.
ONE Friday Fights 46 promises to be an electrifying event, with two high-stakes title bouts set to captivate fans and enthusiasts of martial arts.
